Best gates ever -
By: Sherri1234 from Woodside, CA
I love these gates. They are easy to install and they look great. Not cheap. Well made. The door is easy to open and close. I may buy another one for my mother but would get the wider version.

We bought the extended gate for a 50 inch space to keep our now 5-month old lab contained in the kitchen and family room. Works great and looks good. The kids have no trouble negotiating the gate and it was easy to install. Only 2 weeks of expereince, bjut so far so good.
Dog Gate -

The Wood Frame Dog Gate is really mostly metal painted to match the wooden parts. It is very substantial, thus seems like it should last a while, even with larger dogs than it is recommended for. After opening the box and cleaning up the small styrofoam pieces that stuck to everything, assembly seemed like it was going to be a real chore but, once you realize what is going on, it was a piece of cake. I had to modify the direction concerning the size door frame I was trying to fit as the printed directions, while probably accurate, were not the best solution to fit my frame. After assembly, the dogs like it and humans need a day or so to get used to stepping over the bottom rail. Oh, one slight criticism: The push latch and handle seem to be designed backward so, rather then putting your fingers in the latch and squeezing, you have to push the latch instead.
Very good quality! -

The dog gate was of very good quality. My only complaint was the discrepancy in the two larger measurements. I had to remove some of the parts to make it fit .
Functional and attractive -

I spent $600 on emergency vet bills because my black lab got into the dog food and I couldn't be sure that that was the cause of his bloated stomach. I could have saved myself almost $500 dollars by buying this gate first. I liked it so much, I have recently bought 2 more. It stops the dogs, is easy for me to go through and is very attractive. Easy installation as well.
Be careful of dimensions -

The wood door frame dog gate is very sturdy once you install it. The directions are very difficult to understand. One problem is that the website says the gate's width is up to 36inches. But the actual product when I received it said it was 35 5/8 inches. That fraction does make a difference when your door is 36 inches wide. We were able to stretch it to just fit. It is pricey for the way it is made. Some wood, some metal and a lot of plastic.

Replaces white metal gate and looks so much better with my wooden floor and door frame. Easy to fit, easy to use and sturdy.
This is for small dogs only. -
Ordered this gate because it was advertised as a "tall" gate as I have a lab. After I received it and started to set it up I read the directions and they specifically said this gate is for dogs 44 lbs and under. I spoke with the orvis representative and mentioned that the description should be clearer. Had no problem returning it.
A high hurdle -
By: McGinlayduzitagain from Cornwall
Our minaiture english bull terrier is very excited to meet visitors so we' had installed a normal child gate between the kitchen and the hall. However, our miniature is smarter and more athletic than our previous standard bull terrier and, using a 'fosbury flop' technique, could get over it with relative ease. This product, slightly higher and more robust has beaten him 9 times out of 10. It's exceptionally well made, is aesthetically pleasing and will confound even the most innovative pup!
Love this product! -

When looking for gates to create petfree zones in my home, I discovered the wood door frame dog gate. I immediately ordered two. Though I ordered the tall, not the wide, each gate came with two extenders should they be needed. I did need to add one on each gate. I had each gate installed in less than 10 minutes. They swing both ways and look great in my home. The "walnut" color looks more like a maple color, but that was not an issue. The latch is secure and easy to open. And should I want to relocate the gate, it will be very easy and quick to do so. No hardware, no drilling...just friction fit. Once again this Orvis product did not disappoint. I have since ordered three more. Before I am finished, I will order an additional two for a total of seven.
